6-24-09 PNC Park
Another hot and sunny day at PNC Park today.
I really wasn’t looking forward to batting practice much today, after seeing yesterday’s performance by the Indians. Their right handed hitters all take a predominantly opposite field approach when they are taking their cuts, meaning most of their hits are line drives to right or right center field.
I got on the board with ball #1 of the day from Steven Pearce. He hit a home run that was landing about a row and a half in front of me. I was able to get my glove on it, but didn’t make the catch. The ball dribbled into the row directly in front of me, and I was able to quickly pick it up for my first ball of the day.
The sun was glaringly bright again today.
